Blown Up Lamborghini Gallardo

The Lamborghini Gallardo shown burst into flames near Bukit Damansara, Indonesia at 11:50am 9.23.11.

The owner, who remains unnamed managed to escape without any problems. As for the Lamborghini, it was not as lucky. The mint condition Gallardo blew up, leaving it in very downside condition. It’s value, of course, is worth over $400,000, not something great to lose.

The owner told he was warming up near Jalan Beringin when he noticed clouds of smoke coming out from the bonnet of the car.

“I was driving up a slope at Jalan Beringin when I noticed smoke coming out from the engine bay.

“I stopped the car and got off and then it suddenly burst into flames,” the owner said, adding that he has had possession of the super car for three years and was extremely heartbroken to see it go in flames. The owner believed a fuel leak could have caused the wreck.

24 09 2011

Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante

Lamborghini recently released the prices for the brand new 2012 line up.

Starting off in 2012 is the brand new Lamborghini Gallardo Valentino Balboni, which offers a 5.2-liter V-10 throwing its 550 horsepower to the rear wheels. Pricing starts at $193,895, with the the $2,995 destination charge and a $3,000 gas-guzzler tax (insert pun here) for the six-speed manual. As for the optional E-Gear paddle-shifted transmission, the price jumps to $202,995, quite a change.

Next up is the Lamborghini Gallardo Tricolore, a limited edition of the rear-drive Gallardo with no available manual transmission (more information on the Lamborghini here). Pricing begins at $196,995, with the $2,995 destination charge and the $2,100 gas guzzler tax. Both the Valentino Balboni and Bicolore Edition Gallardo’s are special order only, hence I said limited edition.

The all-wheel-drive Lamborghini is the classic Gallardo LP-560 Coupe, which has the 5.2-liter V-10 engine’s output to a good 560 horsepower. The the six-speed manual, and this version will cost you $207,995, including destination charge and gas guzzler tax. If you want the E-Gear option, the price starts at $217,095, a $10,000 jump.

If you want your Gallardo topless, the LP 560-, which uses the same drivetrain as the LP 560-4 Coupe, starts from $231,395 with the six-speed manual transmission. As for the E-Gear transmission, and the price rises to $240,495, inclusive of destination and gas guzzler tax.

If a less interesting Gallardo is more to your liking, the 570 horsepower Gallardo LP570 Superleggera starts at a nifty $243,595 with the manual transmission, destination charge and gas guzzler tax. As for the E-Gear paddle-shifted version will cost you $242,695, inclusive, which is $900 less than the manual gearbox.

The Gallardo LP 570-4 Spyder Performante is a topless version of the Gallardo Superleggera, and it’s priced from $254,695 for the manual transmission, or $253,095 for the E-Gear transmission.

Finally, we can’t forget the only one version of the 700 horsepower, all-wheel-drive, seven-speed E-Gear equipped Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4. The price although, including destination charge and gas guzzler tax, is $393,695, not such a bad price for the car.
